Yes I grow them. Still wait for fruiting... They are interesting. When you put the dry berry to the water, it stay blue at first then violet. Fruits are rich in antioxidants.Yeah! They'd make a beautiful tea. I would expect it to prefer a climate similar to that of the regular goji. Don't know if they are used fresh or in cereals like red goji.
Where did you get seeds?
And perhaps in the future, topics about pouterias, about spondias, about other families will be cool, since it came out of the sameness.
I reccomend to plant both because they can be easily maintained by prunnning about 10 ft high and both are very good for kitchen as a spice.
Because of high coumarin content in casia, I would discourage use of this species. I think it does more damage than good. Go for the real thing.
Anyone growing Cinnamon in sw/s FL.? How big does it really get?
"Which" cinnamon? Some nurseries tend to abuse the name and interchange cassia and cinnamon. Leaf shapes are totally different as are the uses, benefits and growth habits.
i had mine in containers that didnt do so well.
i put them in ground, and they looked shabby for months
i gave them some mycorrhizae, and it took a few weeks
but , they really took off after that.
also, they are in a raised bed with garden soil.
i think when the roots finally hit the soil underneath
(mostly sand), is when they started growing faster.
not sure if i am a fan of the growth habit.
they fall over, and produce "branches" that sprout up,
then THEY fall over etc...
i did harvest a few handfuls of fruit in the fall.
this is 3 plants... 2 are smaller, most of this jumble, is 1 plant.
Cheers for the info akanonui 😀👍🏼
